Weather Channel app

The official Weather Channel app for Android has been updated to version 3.0, adding a host of new features to help you stay one step ahead of your local atmospheric phenomena.

Additions include voice search and type-ahead for location entry, a new swipeable navigation bar, extra video content and a "hybrid" units setup for British and Canadian users. There's also three new homescreen widgets included in the update.

A warning to Android 2.3 users, though - we tried to get this app working on several devices running Gingerbread, but it seems to have compatibility issues on the latest version of Android, resulting in crashes at startup. We've successfully tested it on Froyo, however, so Android 1.6 to 2.2 users should be just fine.
